Ludlow Food Festival 2013

Posted 15th September, 2013Apron

Ahlan Wa Sahlan – Welcome!

Do you love the Middle Eastern cuisine? Have you been to Egypt and since then became an Egypt Aficionado?

Then join me on UK’s first and only Egyptian cookery masterclass at Ludlow Food Festival on Friday, 13th September @ 11.30am, 1.30pm and 3pm

I am passionate about Egyptian food and I have learned many of the traditional recipes from my beloved aunt Moneira. I have also developed my own style by introducing some modern twists and using the source of local produce around me to cook the most popular Egyptian vegetarian mezze. 

“Ful Medammes is Egypt’s national dish. You don’t know Egypt, if you haven’t tried Ful Medammes.” The spicy and very nutricuous fava bean stew is eaten for breakfast but is also enjoyed for lunch or as a snack. You can buy it from street vendors and shops almost everywhere in Egypt. These tasty mezze are easy and fun to make, especially with a team of eager helpers. You will also learn how to make ‘Jewels of the Nile” these are delicious Pharaonic sweets. And by the end of the course you will get to sample to eat and take away with you!
